Bruce Wayne's cyberpunk cousin?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 09:27 PM)

Laser Wayne

@  Sabrblade : (30 March 2020 - 09:08 PM)

Luther Unum

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 07:09 PM)

Or Lee Derwon.

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:51 PM)

Not to be confused with Leader I

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was Leader Uno

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was the OTHER Leader 1

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 March 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Or Sideways.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 05:26 PM)

On the other hand, this is Armada we're talking about. It could have actually been Metroplex.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 March 2020 - 11:08 PM)

Oh yeah, that was Fort Max. My bad.

Christmas Maximus?

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 March 2020 - 01:13 PM)

At least the ozone layer is healing. unless this is a 0.0000000001% thing it's sounds like good news.

@  ▲ndrusi : (28 March 2020 - 09:27 AM)

(But only pretty sure, not 100% sure.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (28 March 2020 - 09:26 AM)

Pretty sure y'all were thinking of Fortress Maximus yesterday.

@  Bass X0 : (28 March 2020 - 12:38 AM)

Dare! Dare to believe you can survive 2020!

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 March 2020 - 08:18 PM)

Baja Blast is back at retail!

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 03:47 PM)

Shame he wasn't around more. He seemed like such a jolly, happy soul.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 02:16 PM)

No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

@  Paladin : (27 March 2020 - 02:11 PM)

that was Leader-1. or possibly Jolt. maybe Grindor...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 01:57 PM)

Metroplex was in Armada, in a flashback. He was the same size as everybody else. I thought that was the joke.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (27 March 2020 - 12:39 PM)

@Rodimus Supreme: Gah! You are right! How'd I get that mixed up? x.x;

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 12:14 PM)

There is no Metroplex. Only Zuul.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:13 AM)

@Tm_Silverclaw: There is no Armada Metroplex, he was in Cybertron.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:12 AM)

And they'd be better off just retooling Metroplex and Fortress Maximus to be somewhat more accurate and changing/adding parts for interaction with later play gimmicks.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:11 AM)

I honestly would prefer that for scale purposes.

@  Cyoti : (27 March 2020 - 11:07 AM)

They can redo all the CW combiners as Titan Class figures like Predaking/Devastator.

@  Dekafox : (27 March 2020 - 07:52 AM)

They could just redo Metroplex again too. Especially if it's going to be S3 based. They could also do another Primus to go with the coming Unicron.

@  OverDrive73 : (26 March 2020 - 10:56 PM)

If anyone is bored, or interested... I just added the last chapter to my fanfic comic in Allspark Pictures

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 March 2020 - 10:54 PM)

And no.. We could always get Titan Class Superion.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 March 2020 - 10:53 PM)

We need Titan Class Transformers Armada Metroplex.

@  Telly : (26 March 2020 - 08:39 PM)

ill be surprised if scorpy isnt the last titan

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 March 2020 - 05:57 PM)

Too bad a new character titan class figure is pretty much an impossibility.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 March 2020 - 05:56 PM)

I want a titan class, really good looking bucket wheel excavator. Like Cybertron Metroplex was supposed to be but didn't quite pull off.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 March 2020 - 03:32 PM)

I just taped up a shower curtain and took my first shower in three weeks. It was heavenly.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (26 March 2020 - 11:48 AM)

I would buy that...

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 March 2020 - 02:03 PM)

Studio Series 100 Titan Class Driller.

@  Sabrblade : (23 March 2020 - 09:05 PM)

I'll give ya 25 cents, a pack of gum, and some peanuts.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 March 2020 - 07:35 PM)

I can give ya twenty bucks for it.

@  Paladin : (23 March 2020 - 04:28 PM)

hoarder? I hardly know 'er?

@  Dekafox : (23 March 2020 - 01:52 PM)

FOR THE HORDE!

@  repowers : (23 March 2020 - 01:48 PM)

* hordes shrubberies *

@  Telly : (23 March 2020 - 01:46 PM)

YET...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 March 2020 - 01:22 PM)

At least we haven't resorted to shouting "NI" at old ladies.

@  CORVUS : (23 March 2020 - 11:04 AM)

Keep it out, and I won't reply to it.

@  RichardT1977 : (23 March 2020 - 08:50 AM)

It's a sad world where we can't discuss our health and safety without it descending into political arguments...

@  fourteenwings : (22 March 2020 - 11:46 PM)

woah I have no idea what's going on here but it's certainly breaking the "keep P&R out of the shoutbox" rules (which really should be enforced like... at all)

@  CORVUS : (22 March 2020 - 11:13 PM)

Ugh, Chinese. Typo-city.

@  CORVUS : (22 March 2020 - 11:11 PM)

Rodimus, you're just flat-out wrong. Trump eliminated the Pandemic Response Team. Trump was advised in January that this could be serious, and he didn't listen. Trump spent weeks downplaying COVID-19 by implying it was a hoax, and then that it was just a type of flu. He was late to close down travel from China, and by the time he closed down air-travel to the EU, that was also too late. He has refused to take responsibility for removing the pandemic response team, even though he basically bragged about it some months before. He's also prematurely talked up treatments using chlorquinine that have not been properly vetted as yet, and he keeps calling COVID-19 the "Chinense virus" because he can't help but be a jerk. Face facts: Trump is an incompetent bungler. Period. Full-stop.

@  repowers : (22 March 2020 - 03:49 PM)

That's totally super biased!

While there is nothing new on the horizon in terms of production material, I've gone a bit extreme these past few days with adding information.  Added sections detailing TF scene/dialogue cuts and TFTM storyboard cuts that I've posted here and on other forums.  Currently working on Visionaries dialogue cuts, should have the series done in the next couple of days.  Also added production order lists for shows that lasted long enough to go to weekday afternoons and thus production order doesn't line up with broadcast order. 

 

As part of what forays I can make into Sunbow's 1990's output, I've Included a list for Conan The Adventurer.  Where Jean Chalopin dubiously claims to have written 52 half-hours of TV in six months, I've trawled the copyright office records for the writers who have the *cough cough* "Adapted By" credit.

Put up something I probably should have added early on:  a guide to programming, organised by TV season, covering from the beginning of Marvel Productions in 1981 to the shutting down of Sunbow in 2004:

https://sunbowmarvel...-tv-season.html

 

Kinda sad to read the decline of the respective companies in two separate decades.  Beast Wars basically was the beginning of the end for Sunbow in the nineties.  As they didn't get any more Hasbro properties after that, and no comic or movie adaptations were coming their way either.

The first of a series of articles I'm doing on the writing and production process, using what I've brought together.  First up, the three-step process of scripting, using the only available example of both an outline and script for the same episode: Cobra Stops The World

Third article is up.  Something a bit more of a feast for the eyes as it looks at storyboards, slugging and the exposure sheets.  With storyboard samples taken from TF, D&D, DoE, Jem and Amazing Friends

Fourth article ready and probably the last one for the time being.  Looking at the dialogue recording sessions, the drawing up of dialogue scripts and the change that was made to the production schedule halfway through TF.  Also, links to the existing deleted audio and photos showing a major change made to Five Faces Of Darkness: https://sunbowmarvel...-recording.html

Another unproduced project come to light.  An ebay script store is selling pretty much everything from Misty Taggart's career and I'm waiting for her two Jem scripts to pop up.  While I'm waiting, it turns out that she had the gig of developing and pitching a combined Hulk/She-Hulk series.  Maybe a last ditch effort to retool the existing series for renewal?

Many thanks for bringing this to attention. There are a few interesting items on the excerpts shown, such as Marvel considering the original 1982 Hulk series something of an underperformer since the Hulk wasn't more like the live-action version. It's a little strange to then read that, while making the Hulk less verbose, She-Hulk was proposed as an additional regular.

When I first got to the note that made it explicit that Jen Walters and Bruce Banner weren't cousins, I knew what this was in aid of, and the suggested plots confirm her being added as another love interest. In similar fashion to "Spidey Goes Hollywood" and the subsequent 1982 Hulk series, "Enter: She-Hulk" would also appear to be subject to retconning.

I would imagine any references to Jen and Bruce being cousins would have simply been edited out of the proposed re-edits of the previous season.

Again, Marvel re-editing episodes was not unprecedented, with later NBC airings of the first season of Amazing Friends having Stan Lee narration added to them, on at least one occasion with an edit to a character's dialogue.

Obviously the proposed retooling wasn't enough, as no new Hulk episodes were produced for the 1983 season, despite Amazing Friends continuing to be broadcast with pre-existing Hulk episodes in a block.

The general sense of desperation here does lend some credence to something else that was said to be happening in the same timeframe.  In his interview for the Dungeons & Dragons DVD, Mark Evanier talks about how Marvel were calling him up and basically begging him to write the development bible and the pilot.  He was told that if they couldn't sell D&D to a network, Marvel Productions would be shut down.  Even then, he wasn't interested as he was doing a pilot for somebody else.  It was only when one of the top network executives called him and said they would delay the up-fronts (the announcements of the next season's programming) if he could do it, that he finally came onboard.

Hey guys,
 
You’ve shared some really interesting pieces in this forum from Marvel Production Ltd and a handful of other studios.
 
I’m currently working with the person who owns/owned many of the pieces being discussed that slowly trickled into the public over the years, and recently, we’ve been unloading a significant portion as they are now legal to sell.
 
If you want to view more pieces from the collection to use for this thread and other topics, feel free to contact me directly on Instagram via ‘consumercollectibles’ as we have a-lot more to share and discuss. Thanks!
